Activity & Lifestyle


Residents at Mountside Care Home enjoy their independence, friendships, interests and activities where age need not be a barrier to leading a fulfilling lifestyle. Friends and family are welcome to visit at any time, which promotes our ‘home from home’ ethos and enables our residents to entertain exactly as they would at home.

Our activities are not limited to indoors; we open up our wonderful gardens for walks around the terrace area, or simply to sit and soak up the countryside feel to our gardens. During the warmer months we hold activities outside as well as organising trips to places of interest such as garden centres, our historical old town of Hastings or local parks. We also hold an annual barbeque for our residents combined with a Summer Fayre.

Our dedicated Activities Co-ordinator ensures there is always something going on in the home as well as regular outings to local places of interest. Our resident’s choices and preferences are always sought in activities, we have a monthly activities programme which all residents participate in and this is displayed on our website. We have visiting entertainers and monthly exercise options for our more active residents.


Clubs

Clubs organised at Mountside Care Home are encouraged by the hobbies and interests of our residents. A common interest with other residents could inspire them to join a club, or even start one. We recognise that socialising is a key point to forging friendships and bonding over shared interests, this is vital to feeling part of a new community.
